Re: [PATCH 24/44] Workaround i8042 chips with broken MUX mode

linked to broken legacy emulation implementations, Vojtech mentioned
that PCI quirk to turn legacy emulation off may be appropriate.

Is there any code available that can do that as it is now?

This would be useful especially right now under x86-64.

As it is right now I either have the keyboard plugged into
both ps/2 and usb, plug it in only into usb (can't operate
grub) or plug it only into usb (enable emulation, can't
run linux ... ) and if the kernel could have a way of
disabling the emulation that would be good at least in
my case.
